Friendly isn’t just an adjective we use to describe our culture: it’s the thread that runs through the fibers of our being. Whether in the hallways, the conference room, or the cafeteria, you’ll find a smiling face willing to help you out. Just ask Forbes- we were named a “Happiest Company to Work For” in 2018. We encourage you to bring your whole self to work, and celebrate how diversity drives innovation and delivers value across the enterprise. We even have nine Colleague Resource Groups dedicated to connecting and energizing the diverse groups that make up Cigna's workforce and customer base..
Oh, and before we forget to mention the best part: Jeans? Part of the dress code. (It’s called “Dress for your Day,” and it’s totally okay to do a little fist pump here. We’re always excited about it too.)
We figure that employees who dedicate hours of their day to helping customers probably don’t stop being some amazingly kind-hearted and empathetic individuals the second they get home. You’re likely involved and invested in your community too. We recognize and encourage that, so we give our employees plenty of opportunities to get involved in their communities, like giving eight hours of paid time off annually to use specifically for volunteer purposes.
Employees can also take advantage of our Community Ambassador Fellowship Program, where you have the chance to work on a community service project of personal choosing for up to a 12-week period, all while receiving regular pay and benefits with an additional stipend for your project. Volunteering your time will also make you eligible for our Community Services Champions award, where you can win a $500 Cigna Foundation grant to give to the non-profit of your choice.
At Cigna, we believe a job well done is something to be celebrated. (Cue the high-fives, hugs, and happy dances.) However, when it comes to our total rewards philosophy, we know you need more than a pat on the back. Total rewards should be things that are useful, matter to you and help you feel appreciated. They include things like our comprehensive health plan, educational reimbursement (up to $13,500 annually), a 401K and even discounts on pet insurance, to name a few. After all, we know you are the reason for our success, and that’s something we should celebrate every day.
We’re proud to say we’re recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of the best places to work for LGBTQ Equality, and have scored a perfect 100 on their Corporate Equality Index for six years in a row. Our excellence is global, too: we’ve been recognized in Taiwan and India as a “Best Employer” and “Best Place to Work," and are one of the top 100 companies recognized by FlexJobs for providing flexible remote careers. We've placed in the top 15 for Forbes' "Happiest Companies to Work For" in both 2017 and 2018, and have been named one of the "Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles." And like there wasn't enough already, Military Times has consistently ranked us as a great employer for veterans.
At Cigna, we're more than a health insurance company. We're a global health service company dedicated to helping people improve their health, well-being, and sense of security.
Our customers are the center of everything we do. Our team of 40,000+ employees come to work every day with the common goal of improving the lives of those we serve. We strive to make our customer’s experiences easy, reliable, and personal in ways that are proactive and empathetic, and we work to bring flexible and innovative to the current marketplace, encouraging emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. From advocacy, to business operations, to tech development, making wellness easier for our customers isn’t just a day job- it’s a lifestyle.
